Casa en Culebra - RSVP Architects

Located between Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, the Island of Culebra is a popular vacation area thanks to its beautiful beaches and perfect weather. RSVP Architects have designed a simple vacation home which can provide for a variety of activities while occupied by its summer users.

The home is comprised of one wooden box that houses the private activities and one corrugated metal box that houses the public activities. These boxes are formed around a concrete base which functions as the core of the residence. A large pool extends off the base of the house while the other side of the home is balanced by an elevated terrace.

Due to the small size of the house, the spaces must be flexible to accommodate a variety of activities. Since the home will only be used for a portion of the year, the boxes can be fully open for the owners to enjoy when occupying the residence, or securely closed to withstand any tropical weather when not in use.
